ACRP Project 09-22 Cost-Effective Training for Airfield Electricians at Small Airports

Research Field: Maintenance

Allocation: $300,000

Budget resources at small airports are typically limited, and are often not be able to support full-time electricians, leaving the maintenance of airfield lighting to other airport staff. A small airfield lighting issue may then result in significant operational impacts if a repair cannot be made quickly.

The objective of this research is to develop basic electrical... more »

ACRP Project 11-02/Task 43 Quick Response: Successful Community Integration of Advanced Air Mobility trending idea Edited

Research Field: Special Projects

Allocation: $100,000

Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) includes the use of highly automated aircraft to transport passengers and cargo at lower altitudes. Activity will likely include commercial inter-city travel, cargo delivery, public services, and private/recreational use. The initial ecosystem will utilize existing facilities (airports, heliports), but in the future, new, dedicated facilities... more »
